A neighbor serves on the Hospital Board and he says that the plan is to have a larger hospital (which is building now) . We are only 17 miles from stem to stern.

If I were the TV hospital I would want a significant ambulatory presence in/near Brownwood to keep the competition at bay. An urgent care center, maybe a stand-alone ER, surgery center, etc. if they don't someone else will. You should recommend this to your neighbor, GG.

I don't know exactly what it means to serve on a hospital board. I just neighbor.

If they build it maybe a large teaching hospital will come run it. That is what I want. I imagine it is leased for a certain length of time.

I know they had talked about opening another hospital in the south but I think I remember something about they had more chance of attracting more doctors with a bigger facility.

so I am just guessing and trying to remember what was told me.

I know that this was your life work dbussone, and I am not meaning to contradict you.

I am sure the folks whose business it is to provide urgent care services are aware of the opportunities.
Because we all know they read TOTV daily; like all the restaurant owners, shop owners, golf ambassadors, golf course maintenance managers, etc.

I am just guessing that if one successful urgent care is doing good business they may look to open another one.

Huge drawback for whatever opens there - it is not golf cart accessible!

Yes, some make it without being golf cart accessible but lots fail because of that reason.

An Urgent Care Clinic ----maybe-----another hospital----unlikely. For those living near Brownwood you already have two fairly close hospitals. Leesburg and The Villages.

Rumor has it that the widening of 466a to 301 is only a precursor to the eventual golf cart path to the Russell Stover outlet

Who failed because they weren't accessible by golf cart?

Bogie, I have searched the sites that I frequent, and even looked for future locations on the Homegoods website. Nothing. I "thought" I read that somewhere because we had a Homegoods in Myrtle Beach and I am familiar with shopping there. And I thought that was a good thing they were coming to The Villages. Of course, I could be mistaken...

You are assuming the location would be across CR44. Have you looked at the land to the west of Brownwood and the N side of CR44?
